Filmfest 2018

German Age Rating

A break-in can go awry from time to time, but this trio of criminals is particularly scatterbrained. While running with the stolen money, Charly trips, causing a gun to go off. The shot hits Richy. Richy and his half-brother Tom lock Charly out of the getaway car, but the car soon breaks down. The two of them hijack a bus whose passengers are behaving quite strangely. No wonder: the travelers are mourners. While some are dealing with their loss and the others with the danger at hand, the tour operator and Charly follow in pursuit.
